In 2022, Haileybury delivered its first International Summer School and we are building on this success in 2023. The programme has an academic focus and it is aimed at international students aged 11-17 with varying levels of English. The different courses include an impressive range of activities and some exciting excursions to top-end destinations.
You will help create a happy and homely living environment in the boarding house and ensure that pupils feel relaxed and supported. You will be responsible for ensuring that students know how their days will be scheduled what to expect, what is expected of them and that they follow rules.
You will also be responsible for administering any medication that pupils bring and you will liaise with the Pupil Services Manager and school nurse about other welfare and medical matters.
The nature of a 24 hour a day, 7 days per week summer school requires staff to work flexibly. The work is intense, days are long and whether on or off duty, staff are expected to put the needs of the pupils and the reputation of the school first. However, it is extremely rewarding and enables staff to develop their knowledge and skills in a vibrant, energetic workplace.
